Why is Hatemonger Tony Perkins Testifying at the Elena Kagan Hearings?

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

Why is Tony Perkins, president of the queer-hating group, the Family Research Council, whose sole mission is to demonize an entire group of American citizens, being allowed to testify this week about the fitness of President Obama’s Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan?

Perkins is neither an elected U.S. lawmaker, or one of Kagan’s former law professors, or a friend of the nominee.

His presence as a “minority witness” list means one thing: he will go after Elena Kagan for stating “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is, in her view, unwise.

    Tony Perkins needs his ass kicked.

    I would love to see the ‘Dykes on Bikes” corner him in a dark alley and work him over.

  2. Brigadoon says:

    What fucking bullshit. Perkins has no right to ask Kagan for the time of day. He’s a member of a known hate organization and belongs in jail — not on Capitol Hill. What the hell is happening to this country?

  3. sean says:

    I’m glad you asked the question but what is the answer. Who gets to testify and what qualifies you?

  4. Scott Dancer says:

    This is precisely why I have no use for conservatives.

    If Perkins were denied an appearance, he would take to friendly media outlets like CNN and FOX, and whine about how the confirmation process is being politicized by President Obama’s liberal friends.

    Of course, no one invited Aubrey Sarvis, the executive director of the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, the organization committed to the repeal of DADT.

    So what makes Perkins’ presence more valid than that of Sarvis?

  5. Estacada says:

    Scott Dancer – You’re always so intelligent and articulate and I enjoy your posts and I wish you posted more often but in this instance, I’m 100% with Brigadoon.

    Perkins appearance is utter bullshit and purely political. He’s not a member of Congress and he has no relationship to Ms. Kagan.

  6. Arizona Leatherneck says:

    Doesn’t the Senate Judiciary Committee determine who gets invited to these things?

    They fucked up royally inviting this doll-boy punk Perkins. He’s a weasel and a hater. These little pricks just show up to cause problems — nothing more.

  7. Harry says:

    So what day is George Rekkers testifying about Kagan?

  8. lea-lea says:

    No, no, no, no!

    There is no reason on earth for this homophobe to have any access to Elena Kagan. His appearance just transforms these hearings into a freak show.

    So what day is George Rekkers testifying about Kagan? – Harry

    FOFLMAO! 😉

  10. Jolly Roger says:

    Why is a guy who purchases mailing lists from the Ku Klux Klan within a continent of a DC confirmation hearing?

  11. Thai Noodles says:

    What should happen if Kagan is commanded to take questions from this idiot Perkins is, she should just stare vacantly at him and repeat,

    “I’m terribly sorry sir, who are you?”

    When he restates his name and question, Kagan should then say,

    “I’m terribly sorry sir, but I don’t understand what you’re talking about.”

    Just string him along and make a fool of him.

  12. At least they didn’t call Randall Terry in to testify, I read he was outside protesting her hearing and trying to get a little media attention. Fucking whores both of them…Randall and Tony

  13. they should ask tony perkins if he dresses like his mother and stabs people in the shower……

    why did they ask him to testify – because they can and NO ONE challenges them
